The 'The Man with the Golden Arm' title sequence is designed by Saul Bass and has become a landmark in title design.

When the reels of film for "The Man With the Golden Arm" arrived at US movie theatres in 1955, a note was stuck on the cans -- "Projectionists -- pull curtain before titles".

Saul Bass: "My initial thoughts about what a title can do was to set mood and the prime underlying core of the film's story, to express the story in some metaphorical way. I saw the title as a way of conditioning the audience, so that when the film actually began, viewers would already have an emotional resonance with it"

This movie used to be in "Public domain hell" but has been restored by Martin Scorsese's Film Foundation.
The Man with the Golden Arm is currently available as part of the Frank Sinatra - The Golden Years Collection box set:
